Gastric Ulcer: Questions & Ideas (Part 1)

How does the size of a gastric ulcer effect the likelihood of it being cancer?

Science is still guessing on this; wait for the test results. Good Luck.

What is the best way to detect a peptic or gastric ulcer?

An endoscopy or gastroscopy is the best way.

A CT scan won't show up any ulcers.
A barium swallow will only show up any hernia's or reflux.
A colonoscopy will only show up problems in the bowel.

There are heaps of videos on YouTube that show a gastroscopy and ulcers in the gut.

When you have a gastric ulcer, why do you take antihistamines instead of aspirin?

Aspirin acts differently for your stomach than it does the rest of your body...It would cause more acid that can make your gastric ulcer worse. There are cheap perscription drugs you can take like the generic form of Protonix that will calm your stomach.

If you ignore the ulcer, you will probably get really sick. Vomiting, diarrhea, sometimes it can get so bad you may end up in the hospital. If you can't get a hold of medicine right away, the best you can do is avoid stress, smoking, bad food, drinking alcohol, and whatever you think caused you to have the ulcer in the first place.

You don't want to take risks with your stomach; because it is really important to your overall health.

Is paracetamol safe to use when you have a gastric ulcer?

Elzanne - Pain can often be alleviated by medication that does not predispose to peptic ulceration. Paracetamol (eg Panadol) may be worth trying in this respect, as it is not associated with peptic ulceration. HOWEVER, FIRST you need to have absolute proof that you do have a gastric ulcer, almost all of which are caused by a bacteria called Campylobacter or Helicobacter pylori. You doctor or a medical lab can perform a simple test for H. pylori. If present, your doctor can prescribe the appropriate antibiotic to cure your ulcer. Don't wait. You may have something milder like GERD (GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease) with strong stomach acid backing up into the esophagus and causing the burning. This too can lead to worsening if not properly treated.

My Gf Has Gastric Ulcer Is It Contagious?

Actually this is an interesting question because gastric ulcers, if she has one, can be caused by an organism called helicobacter pylori (h. pylori) She should have her ulcer evaluated and treated. H.pylori is not very easy to transmit person to person. It is highly unlikely that a couple of kisses would transmit this, even if she does have it. Married couples are often tested and one has this, and another does not. Thankyou for an interesting question.

If you have a gastric ulcer isn't there a needle that is huge that you put into your abdominal?

It is a wrong myth and needle has nothing to do with the disease. Peptic ulcers are mucosal breaks of >3 mm and are common, occurring in about 10% of adults in Western countries Gastric ulcers account for about one third of peptic ulcers, and duodenal ulcers account for the remainder

Helicobacter pylori infection and the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the 2 main factors in the pathogenesis of peptic ulcers. H pylori infection occurs in 75% of gastric ulcers and 90% of duodenal ulcers. Other possible factors include the use of steroids or aspirin, smoking, alcohol or coffee consumption, stress, delayed gastric emptying, and duodenogastric bile reflux.

Can anyone explain to me why someone with a gastric ulcer might be prescribed an antihistamine?

Histamine stimulates the secretion of gastric acid. "Acid blockers" are histamine blockers. If they are insufficient, then a regular antihistamine tablet (like the kind you use for allergies) may be added to get more histamine blockade.

What is the Difference between gastric ulcer and peptic ulcer?

They are the same thing, an ulcer in the stomach as opposed to the duodenum (beginning of small intestine).

Gastric ulcer associated with dizziness and tired shoulders/back?

Shoulder pain is a frequent sign of referred pain from the abdomen. If he's still feeling dizzy and having pain, he should call his doctor. He should be sure to tell them he's having shoulder pain. They will understand the significance.

What can cause a Bleeding Gastric Ulcer if it is not bacteria or NSAIDS?

Stress, cancer, too many acidic foods, alcohol, perhaps the various types of supplements/vitamins he is taking. A good health history would be important in determining the cause.

What exactly is a gastric ulcer?

A gastric ulcer is an erosion of the lining of the stomach. It can be caused by a bacteria (H pylori), alcohol use, NSAID use. The treatment depends on the cause. If its due to h pylori then antibiotics are taken. Anti-reflux meds are also used to decrease the acid in the stomach which prevents further ulceration.

I read after ten years you got deudonal you will get gastric ulcer. is it a fact?

No. Unfortunately it sounds as if your gastric ulcer was the precursor to your duodenal ulcer and for some reason either was not very big or was not seen when they caught the gastric. It's also a possibility that your duodenal was found during a colonoscopy and the gastric during a endoscopy. That could be another reason. Whatever the reason was I'm sorry you had to experience so many similar discomforts 2 years in a row. You must be otherwise very healthy at 65 with no medications and no stress. I applaud how you must be taking care of yourself, I can only think that your problems might be genetic. I'm not sure were you saw the information about these ulcers but I've never heard nor worked with anyone that this has ever happened to. I hope this eases your mind and answers your question, but you can always ask your GI doctor. I'm sure they are up on all the newest and oldest facts in this area. Good luck and God Bless

I was diagnosed with gastric ulcer and duodenitis.?

You need to be tested for h. pylori before taking antibiotics. if the test is positive, you should take the antibiotics. it's usually prilosec or prevacid with clarithromycin and amoxicillin or clarithromycin plus metronidazole. you'll heal without the antibiotics but the problem is likely to recur if you don't treat for h. pylori. ask your doctor for the blood test for h. pylori.

I have a gastric ulcer since 1996 and i have being on omerprazole 20mg daily and lansoprazole 30mg once daily ?

This could be serious. You need to see your physician. The medication regimen you are using doesn't make sense, both of those drugs are members of the same family (proton pump inhibitors) and work the same way - you are very near the max dose of this class of drug. If they are not working then your ulcer may be getting worse and need something else done, or the diagnosis may be wrong and you need to have the symptoms re-evaluated so that the correct diagnosis can be treated with the correct dose and type of medications. Please don't self-doctor this anymore; you need to see a physician and get checked out. There are other things which this could be, causing these symptoms, besides "ulcer." Seriously. Symptoms of "ulcer" that don't get better could indicate gastritis, active bleeding ulcer, heart attack/angina, or stomach cancer at the old ulcer site (which does in fact happen). Don't just ignore these symptoms please!

Is there a doctor in the house? Gastric ulcer.and the possibility of it being caused by a bacteria?

Why would you experience pain in your shoulder from a perforated gastric ulcer?

There are a few types of pain, but this pain is called "referred pain". It is similar to what happens when one has a heart attack, they often feel pain in their neck and back. The mechanism for this isn't known, but there are a few theories about it.

What drug must i take for gastric ulcer?

I am not prescribing you as a medicine professional, but as a person who has suffered from stomach ulcers. I did end my ulcer treatment, twice. After that the symptoms returned, just like you, so i discovered there are 2 very important things to do. One, is not going back to the old habits that caused the ulcer. Bad eating habits, drinking excessive alcohol or poor management of stress.

The second one, is ask your doctor abut taking Sucralfate to aid your stomach in recovering. Its side effects are mild and it does work like magic by covering the ulcerated area with a film-like substance, which allows your body to heal more efficiently.

Is it harmful to take xanax with a gastric (stomach) ulcer?

Nope, should be fine. Still probably should take with some food.

What life style to adopt after gastric ulcer disese?

If the ulcer was caused by H. pylori you can eat anything you want. If the ulcer was caused by NSAIDs (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc.) you may need to switch to a different painkiller or take an PPI such as Prilosec or Prevacid to prevent recurrence of ulcers. Talk to your doctor.

If you have an ulcer can you still have gastric bypass surgery?

Shouldn't be a problem. We test all of our patients 6 weeks before surgery for H pylori and treat them with antibiotics accordingly to prevent any complications with he surgery. You should ask you surgeon specifically about this treatment and remediation, not your GP.
